, and schools closed in a number of cities. forecasters predicted new england would get the worst of it with up to three feet of snow likely in boston. mayor thomas menino. >> this is a storm of major proportions. stay off the roads. stay home. let the public works crews do their job. >> brown: the region also braced for winds reaching 75 miles an hour that will pile up drifts and almost guarantee widespread power outages. as ever, the threat prompted shoppers to pack stores, stocking up on supplies. >> this is panic shopping, so bread, milk, a snow shovel in case our snow shovel breaks. >> you've got to plan ahead. a couple feet of snow would shut everything down and, who knows, it could be a couple of days, right? >> brown: in new york city, predictions called for as much as a foot of snow, and mayor michael bloomberg said the city had marshaled an army of plows and salt trucks. >> the sanitation department will deploy something like 1,700 snowplows and 65 front-end loaders. it also has 450 salt-spreaders already deployed. >> brown: the storm also focused new concern on the new york and new j
of a hurricane approaching new york city. not a hurricane, but we will have hurricane winds with this coming up, brooke. >> i'm coming back to you. we'll talk about the dense northeast, tens of millions of people, many of whom lived through sandy. first, the good news. skiers who planned trips right before the valentine's day weekend here, those folks, you called it right. as we look at these pictures from maine, do keep in mind those winds are going to whip. and before this thing is over, you will have zero visibility, snow blowing sideways, deep, deep drifts, that sort of thing. want to talk about boston. look at this. this is -- you can't see it, it is fenway park. you'll recognize fenway if there wasn't snow and ice on the lens of this camera. snow started there right around 9:30 this morning. and we're hearing boston could break its all time snow record. the all time record set in either 1978 in that deadly winter storm, blamed for dozens of deaths, or more recently in 2003. take your pick. 27 inches each time. boston, right now, is under a snow emergency. no on street parking. schools are
city we're now told the latest totals could be in the 14 inch range, boston is clearly the bulls eye of this northeast storm, but so many areas are going to feel it all around that and that city could get as much as three feet, we're being told right now. if you're planning to travel by air in the area on the map, you can pretty much forget it, folks. nearly 3800 flights have been canceled on the east coast, and the mayor of boston deploying work crews out in force, and virtually planning to shut the city down. they don't want anybody out on the roads. >> we have a 34,000 tons of salt over 600 pieces of equipment ready to be deployed throughout the storm. again, this is a storm of major proportion. stay off the roads. stay home. let the public works crews do their job the next 48 to 72 hours. >> so you hear that, and a live report coming up later in the hour from our fox extreme weather center which will give you the newest information and we will have an update coming in soon on the storm's path. and this is the other huge story right now, the desperate search for a suspected killer
incredible stuff. the hardest forecast is the new york city because the temperatures are kind of borderline. it may start as snow, go over to rain, a little sleet and back over to snow late. that's why the snow totals for new york, i have them down to six to ten inches. if it's all snow, it could be as much as 14 inches in new york city. that's the big question mark. hartford's going to get nailed, also all the way to southern portions of new hampshire and portland, maine. i mentioned temperatures. notice it's 38 in philly, 34 in baltimore. that's why southwards i don't think you'll get much out of this at all. that's why d.c.'s not getting snow. look how cold it is in the new england area. this is how it plays out. again, the bottom line, the worst of the storm arrives after noon today. so if you're in northern jersey, new york city area, long island, connecticut, hudson valley all the way through eastern mass and rhode island, do not be on the roads after noon today. that's the most important message everyone needs to know because if you do that and you get stuck on the roads, it's going
nothing that city has really ever seen, believe it or not. blizzard, winter storm and coastal flood warnings are in effect this morning as 10 million people brace for the onslaught. grocery stores and gas stations are seeing long lines of customers stocking up in case of power outages. this storm is already causing a lot of havoc on travel plans across this country and event nationally, in fact about 3,000 flights, 3,000 have already been canceled, and we haven't seen the worst of it. meteorologist janice dean is out -- we thought maybe she was out, but maybe she told them, no-no, it's too cold outside. rick outside. jon: she is wearing or camouflage dress. jenna: i thought you were going to be outside. apparently i was wrong. >> reporter: i'm go outside if you need me that. i am well prepared. this weather machine has got her parka. so certainly you've got to be prepared. my husband was in line last night getting the gas. the important thing to remember is a lot of the northeast went through hurricane sandy, so we know what it's like to be without power for weeks, and we know what

newark to new york city, all the way through hartford and connecticut, to boston, massachusetts, up to portland, maine. this entire area is going to get the driving, blinding snow, the snow that shuts down cities. this is kind of a big hit for this area. it really comes together with two storms. one storm that's delivered a hit of snow. north of the chicagoland area, about ten inches of snow. you didn't have to get too far to get that snow there. and in central detroit. not detroit, but central michigan. they picked up about ten inches of snow. as that system drives up to the north, they get together and phase right about 2:00, 3:00 in the morning, that system will pull itself together to become one, big snowmaker off the coast of new york and connecticut and massachusetts and boston, to make that big, big storm happen. who gets what? if you're south of the center of the storm you get rain. right along the coastal areas, where you see the flashing red, we have a hurricane-force wind warning out there. the coastal areas that were devastated by sandy, you get a real impact from the wa

. that's going to take away from some of their total, but still you could literally go from new york city where they may get 6 to 10 inches to westchester county where it could be as much as 24 inches. all of connecticut is expecting over a foot of snow easy and it will be blowing around and once again, the state of connecticut is facing power outages with a storm of this magnitude. just hard to believe, but this poor state has just been hit so hard. and the problem, craig, is, okay, we see the power outages, the poles are down, tree limbs are down. how do you get the power back on? how do you get to the poles where there's two, three feet of snow on the ground in some of these areas? that has to be removed first before you can get in and restore power. that's why they're telling everybody, plan on extensive power outages with a storm of this magnitude and, unfortunately, everything we see meteorologically is coming together right now off the east coast of new jersey. >> jim cantore with the very latest for us from boston. thanks to you, sir. appreciate that. much more ahead with martin b
